SKU: 364215376135191

This course provides participants with functional concepts of stress, emotions, and behaviors that result as a consequence of stress-triggered stimuli. What is stress and how is it biologically regulated? 

 

Oftentimes, the biological and physiological stress responses during critical situations shape the outcome of the incident and could have negative effects on an officer’s psychological stability for years to come. However, even though it is generated by stress hormones, stress can be a pretty subjective phenomenon. Often times the stress-trigger stimuli, whether absolute or relative, could be perceived by one person as threatening and be stress-free to another. Chronic and prolong stress is often associated with negative thinking processes, cognitive distortion, memory loss, and other biological shortcomings that interfere with day to day functionality. 

 

The course is designed to provide the participants with an objective, scientific, and empirical understanding of stress, patterns of negative thinking, and their association with negative behaviors, habits, aggression, violence, anxiety, and decision making processes. 

 

The course will explore the concepts of resilience, short and long-term stress management, teaching participants to become more immune to stress-triggered stimuli, and provide them with psychological tools that will make them stronger. The curriculum is designed to provide empirical tools and strategies to deal with stressful situations without being unreasonably overwhelmed by stress.
